V/A - Brown Acid - The Sixth Trip
Six volumes worth of licensed tracks released in just three years: doing the Dark Lords work isnt an easy job, but somebodys gotta do it, so here is Brown Acid - The Sixth Trip, with more lined up. The heads just cant get enough obscure hard rock, heavy psych, and proto-metal from the late60s and 70s! This time around Riding Easy present ten deep cuts from across the continental USA and one from the neighbors up North. This trip kicks off with an outrageous number from Gold out of San Francisco circa 1970. The band used to open their sets with this over-the-top frantic jammer which is absolutely mind-blowing! Delving deeper into the depths, Canadians continue to prove that they could bang heads with the best of em! Heat Exchange from Toronto released the rollicking ripper Inferno on the Yorkville label way back in 1968 and its still thumping almost fifty years later. Some more examples of the mind-melting tracks on this platter: Missouri isnt a state that brought us a lot of heavy 45s, but there are a handful of outstanding tracks, one of which is the funk-laced anthem Give Me Time by Backwood Memory from Kansas City. Youngstown, Ohio, meanwhile, might have been the Hard Rock Mecca back in the day. Travis is yet another Youngstown group that aimed to get asses out of seats and out in the streets. Truth & Janey had their incredible proto-metal masterpiece 1976 album No Rest For The Wicked; released four years earlier, Midnight Horseman was a 45-only track, included here! Those are just some of the fruits of months worth of record digging and detective work included on this latest installment. This is the stuff that makes life worth living, at least until the next Trip... - Ridingeasy.
